Ko Bulon Lae

Where to stay: Ko Bulon Lae

Bulon’s best beach, by far, is School Beach, which stretches along the southeast coast and hosts the largest and priciest resorts, with one exception. Nearby Panka Noi Bay is a fine option for saving cash in a central location. A little further north, Panka Yai Bay and surrounds hosts many of the cheapest bungalows on Bulon and is only a 15-minute walk from School Beach. Note that almost every place to stay closes from around June to October.

Panka Noi Bay

Located a 10-minute walk up the lane from School Beach, Ao Panka Noi is a small and relaxing bay hosting a few quality restaurants, though the rocks and mangroves don’t make it so good for swimming. At time of writing the old Viewpoint Resort had closed for the past year, though we heard that it’s likely to reopen in the future.
